Last year's fair was also held at the XVIII century Gostiny Dvor and attracted 34 international and Russian art galleries representing works by more than 130 contemporary artists. Over 14,000 people visited the fair in 2015 with 2,500 attending the collector’s preview.

MOSCOW.- Cosmoscow, the only international contemporary art fair in Russia and the CIS will take place from 9-11 September 2016 at Gostiny Dvor, Moscow. This year’s fair is supported by strategic partner Credit Suisse and jewelry partner Carrera y Carrera.

Last year's fair was also held at the XVIII century Gostiny Dvor and attracted 34 international and Russian art galleries representing works by more than 130 contemporary artists. Over 14,000 people visited the fair in 2015 with 2,500 attending the collector’s preview.

Credit Suisse remains as the strategic partner of Cosmoscow demonstrating their support for long standing cultural initiatives. Joining them as the new partner of the fair will be jewelry brand Carrera y Carrera.

The 2016 advisory board of the fair is led by the owners of The Ekaterina Cultural Foundation Ekaterina and Vladimir Semenikhin, who will work with longstanding members such as Dillyara Allahverdova, Antoine Arnault and Natalia Vodianova, Teresa Mavica, Vassily Tsereteli, and Olga Vaschilina.

The non-commercial programme of Cosmoscow will continue this year with the specially curated exhibition of private loans “Collector’s Eye” and the “Off white” charity auction in benefit of the Naked Heart Foundation, supported by Christie’s. The auction brings together works by young international and Russian artists, introducing emerging artists to new collectors while raising vital funds for the Naked Heart Foundation, creating one of many remarkable events of the Fair’s 2016 programme.

Cosmoscow has selected its 2016 artist of the year, Russian artist Svetlana Shuvaeva, who will present a specially commissioned project at the fair in September. Svetlana Shuvaeva was born in 1986 in Bugulma (Tatarstan Republic). In 2010 she graduated from the Samara State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering (design faculty) and moved to Moscow where she works today. Since 2007 she has been in group exhibitions in Russia, Ukraine and Austria, she has had solo exhibitions in galleries in Moscow, Togliatti and Samara.

The 2016 programme will be complimented by a number of satellite exhibition events including the Stephan Balkenhol exhibition at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. This exhibition will present wooden sculptures and reliefs created in the last 15 years as well as new pieces commissioned for exhibition curated by Matthias Winzen. Also on view in Moscow will be an exhibition at the Vladimir Smirnov and Konstantine Sorokin Foundation programmed to accompany the fair. The first ever personal exhibition of one of the most known and important contemporary Russian artists – Valery Koshlyakov will take place at the new Russian Impressionism Museum in Moscow and coincide with the Cosmoscow Fair. The exhibition is curated by renowned Italian curator and former director of a number of Italian museums of contemporary art, Danilo Eccher. Finally, The Ekaterina Cultural Foundation will prolong its current exhibition from the Foundation’s collection that Cosmoscow guests will get a unique opportunity to visit.
